New! Search for Zeetex ZT1000 tyres for your make + model.
ok in the dry not so good in wet but they are a budget tyre so your gonna loose some performance probally wont buy again but seem to last a good long time . . only thing i would say to any one who buys them is check tyre pressure after fitting . . .mine were at 42 psi all round which is crazy to be honest manufacture state 36 max so always worth checking
Needed 2 new BUDGET summer tires, and bought these...They are fitted to the front, and on the rear i have Uniroyal Rainsport 3(almost new 6.5-7mm, drove them only one season)...I'm actually impressed with these Zeetex tires... They are very quiet(at least in this dimension) and very soft to the touch... I do drive aggressively... DRY In the dry and warm weather, they hold the road really impressive...It seems that somehow in the corners they grip better than amlost new uniroyals(only 7-8k km on them) on the back, as i'm able to initiate lift off oversteer quite easly...Steering is also more precise than with uniroyals even though they are softer to the touch...Braking is also pretty good. WET They do not shine in the wet as in the dry, but they are completly ok...They are worse than uniroyals, but uniroyal is the best rain tire for the money... They do not aquaplane easly on the straight, but if you try to corner aggressively they will understeer(but you can carry reasonable speeds)...Braking is average, so you need to be more carefull, but again, they are fine, i've driven a lot worse and more expensive tires... One more thing,they like to spin on that "smooth" wet asphalt if you try to take off with a little more gas :) They are on the car for 2 000km, so only time will tell how they'll behave when they are worn...I'll update the review But for now, every recommendation if you are on a tight budget! And if you are a normal/casual driver, you definitely do not need anything more than this tire, trust me!
I have buy the tires after seeing the test of summer tyres in magazine Auto-bild. Never mind it is made in China, because it has placed in the15 top summer tyres (with premium tyres like Continental, Dunlop, Goodyear and so on.. ) among 50 others. It has short distance of breaking on a rain surface, it is quit and comfortable. I buy it on my Mazda 323 F type BA (185/65 R14) and then also on Mazda 2 (185/55 R15) - the steering of every car is very direct and comunicative, so I am able to recognize where is the limit of tyres. But I can not say how will be working in tha car with uncomunicative steering - i mean, that first you have to feel something in your steering wheel, not only say that tyres are bad because of "budget " prices a name of tyre.
